Good grief - it's not that long ago that £70 for 350/500Gb was a great price! Hot from me.
what about the 'click of death"? It has over 100 one star reviews on Amazon?

I am after a new hd, still not decided which... Ideally I would like one with firewire
cheap ... for a reason X)
Good price - crap drive.

not bad seen one a few weeks ago at £60 2TB but had bad reviews so didnt purchase.... try use this code
never had a problem with seagates
never had a problem with seagates

their external drives seem to have a problem

you may think all is fine copying stuff to them, but if you look at windows event viewer, you are likely to see lots of warnings if copying large amounts of data

I encountered an unrecoverable error a few times too...and windows loses the file (as it has written to the cache and deleted it, but the cache can't be flushed due to an error on the external drive)

happens on the 1tb and 1.5tb drives, I don't have a 2tb one, but suspect it is the same

seagate internal drives in a 3rd party caddy don't have the same problems

I am reluctant to buy any more seagate usb external drives until the problem is resolved
In the market for a external drive but more concerned about realibility than price. Looks like Seagate are ones to avoid - any idea which are considered the best for quality and reliability?

ive got a deskflex and a freeagent from seagate and both have been fine, also 2 internals that have never missed a beat, im going to check the windows event viewer now tho.
Bought one of these about 3 months ago and it's useless! Clicks all the time and it's extremely loud. If you try and copy more than a GB at a time it crashes and you need to restart it. I have a 1GB as well and that's great. Just seems to be an issue with the 2GB :(

I have freeagents too

I thought the 1TB were fine thats why I then bought a 1.5TB, but that immediately gave juddery playback on DVD ISOs, and when I investigated further, found the 1TB was generating event viewer warnings too

A real sinking feeling when you realise your 1TB of data is not stored safely

let us know if you get the same symptoms

I've had the 1TB version for almost a year now and it has been reliable :)
I've replaced 2 under warranty, thank God for the 3 years. Definitely consider other options if you have valuable data to store.
My last three Seagate purchases had clicking drives in them. Looks like their committing suicide about their business. Three years later and it's still happening?! Shame on you Seagate!
